Hi!
In another forum I´ve seen th "Soleil Royal", a partwork series only sold in Italy. I loved this ship and tried everything to get it. After a while I´ve found someone who sold me his started build and I got the complete kit directly from Italy. Of cause the instructions are in Italian language, but the photos showed me enough to continue this model. On the following pictures you can see what I got up to issue 100 of 140 where I am working now. The model isn´t painted yet, it will get a clear finish. Some modifications (like blue coloured wood instead blue painting) had been made too.

I hope you like it, Bernd

Hi!
New update: now she´s painted with a clear coating, it makes the wooden structure coming out better. Also the first decorations are fixed.
